During the Bryant City Council meeting Tuesday, an issue about CodeRED came into question.
Alderman Randy Cox, who recently announced his candidacy for mayor, asked Mayor Jill Dabbs why residents were not notified about a recent boil order via CodeRED.
Cox said he received several calls from residents who said they called City Hall about the service and were told it was canceled.
"People's lives were jeopardized," Cox said. "It's a public safety issue."
Benton is about to have its own pictorial graphic.
The Saline Courier advertising representatives soon will be calling on area businesses and organizations to develop a poster-size, full-color, cartoon artist's rendering of the Benton area.
The poster will be deserving of a frame, according to Saline Courier publisher Tony Cooper.
"This one-of-a-kind poster will permanently depict the personality of the community as it appears today," Cooper said.
He pointed out that this is a "unique and fun way of accomplishing a serious objective â€” promoting the community."
